GW and Pricing - Rant about Dark Vengeance
I haven't even started to mention that it's an 100 DOLLAR barrier... so for english people they have broken what - the £50 barrier??!? Really? What about other countries? The statement obviously doesn't apply, although I do not deny it is high price compared to what it was before, yet can we really put a value to the increase in quality of the miniatures in the box? Couldn't gw be claiming some increase for the newer, better rules that come in the box too? (which could have also been why the full rulebook costs more aswell).
Finally, for GOD"S SAKE - IT'S A STARTER SET! Be happy that they even give you that and if you're already a player then there isn't a lot of reason for you to buy the box in the first place. One problem that many people have is that even though they don't collect certain armies, when they see a good deal they take it, and although dark vengeance is more pricey than previous starter boxes we have seen, it still is just that, a good deal - take it or leave it, and enough with the complaining.
On a side note though I am extremely disappointed with the fact that they have repeat minis in the set, I may have even picked one up without that negative, even though some people say that nowadays we are spoilt for choice. Guess you can't please everyone...
